Ondineke is a classic tripel, brewed in the ancient way, again with exclusive natural ingredients: artesian water, malt (barley), hops, yeast and liquid candy sugar. As in the Saison no spices are added. Ondineke is an unfiltered top fermenting beer. It is soft, creamy, and of golden color. It is double hopped with the last real hops available from the region of Aalst (The variety is Hallertau Mittelfrüh). Ondineke has a positive taste evolution and the bottles are best kept standing in a cool, dark place. It is best before two years after the bottling date. 8.5 % alc.vol. makes this a beer to be savoured. Preferably Ondineke is to be served at a temperature between 6 to 10° C. Moreover Ondineke is at its best when served in the originally designed Glazen Toren glass.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 Golden with a nice thick white foam, a stream of bubbles swirls up from the center of the glass. Vanilla and orange in the nose. Spicy with a slightly bitter orange zest bite, some yeast notes. Medium palate with a somewhat bitter swallow. not bad overall.

Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, big white foamy head. Aroma is acidic fruits, sweet barnyardish notes as well as some grass. Flavour is big wheat, hops with some spices and malts. Overall a very pleasantly balanced beer.

I just typed a big paragraph rating this beer. My damn laptop mouse pad thingy randomly likes to go back a page as I try to navigate the pad. Sigh. Good tripel.

3fourths (8884) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2007
750mL bottle from Chevy Chase Wine. Beautiful creamy yellow body with a quick-growing, soft bubbled head that overflows the glass unexpectedly. Thick white lacing sticks to the insides of the glass as the head settles down slowly. Floral, sweet citrus fruit and yeast nose, some lemon candy and wheat scents are quite heavy in the nose, with lighter notes of spicy sea-foam and sharp grapefruit. Up front it’s fluffy and light bodied, light spicy wheat and yeast tasted. Over the middle and into the back it’s moderately thick lemon candy once again, with lighter flavors of soapy sea-foam and pineapple. Slick, almost oily, candy sweet finish. Very good. I think usually I would say it’s too sweet, but the finish has a decent enough dryness with some spicy, fluffy yeast that the candied lemon flavors and sweet, sugary, semi-thick body aren’t too dominant. It works. Very refreshing and vibrant.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 23, 2007
Dark yellow colored, cloudy appearance. Little white head. Fruity, mildly spicy and alcoholic aroma with orange and some yeast. Medium bodied. Flavor is sweeter with also spices, crispy carbonation. Candy sugar comes up obviously. Some lemon in still sweet aftertaste.

thornecb (5130) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 22, 2007
Aged 1 year. Pours bright gold into a tulip. Bright white fluffy micro head does not recede. Spritzy lemon and backyard aromas. Soft lemon from front to back. Lasting citrus finish. How can this have no added lemon?

TBone (14902) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 20, 2007
Hazy orange color, cloudy white head, lace. Fruity aroma: apricot and peach in the nose. Foamy carbonated mouthfeel. Sweeter than typical Belgish tripels - more like American version of the style. Fruity, grassy, hoppy, refreshing tripel. Not too yeasty and enjoyable.

750ml - Light gold under substantial creamy head. malty banana nose with some hops. Malty, hearty mouthfeel. Good but there are better.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2007
Hazy gold in color, this has a tall foamy head that settles, then grows with a movement of the glass, then settles, et cetera. It has a complex aroma of nutty dough, soapy yeast, citrus fruits, and garden flowers. This has a light & gassy feel to it, the type that bloats the stomach a bit upon drinking. It tastes of sweet malts with a grassy/floral bitterness, has a light touch of tart oranges, and a peppery spiciness that warms the tongue. The finish has a light sourness to it along with a splash of malty sweetness. Nice, even if it leaves me belching for a while.
